Hemp Commission votes to support SB 50; Comer fires on opposition

In a historic meeting, the Kentucky Industrial Hemp Commission (KIHC) voted to support Senate Bill 50, Senator Paul Hornback’s legislation that establishes a framework if and when the federal government acts to re-introduce industrial hemp into Kentucky’s agri-economy.  Today marked Senator Hornback’s first meeting as a member of the Commission, and he was met with enthusiastic applause.

“Senator Hornback has shown great courage,” Comer said.  “He is standing up for our farmers and all Kentuckians who want to see opportunities for our farm communities and jobs for our citizens.”
